, i want to show you guys this jon stewart moment that i looked at this morning on the internet because i thought it was interesting, and we'll get chris hahn's reaction to this, first, and it goes to the point we're talking about. >> so i'm asking you all to make your voice heard. if you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of congress know. if you believe we can solve this problem through compromise, send that message. [laughter] [applause] >> call your congressman? did the president just quit? [laughter] i mean, seriously, you're the president. you're asking us to call congress? [laughter] martha: yeah, i mean, often, you know, this is where things bubble up, you know?

of the rest of the pack. jon huntsman, we can mention, he also has a pretty big fund-raising hall for a guy that not a lot of people know about. $4 million. we should mention half of that, though, is money he kicked in himself. he is part of a very wealthy family that owns a chemical company out there in utah. so not too surprising there. one thing we can tell you this morning is that president obama's re-election campaign, they are very proud of the fact that they have a roughly $490,000 contributors who have donated so far to the president's campaign. that is a number that they are tweeting out and getting out today. that is way more than he had back in 2007. of course, not too surprising back then. he was sort of a long shot for the white house. speaking of presidential runs. we should mention that we are getting reports and we are expecting to see thad mccarter, a congressman from michigan. he is well known up in michigan and well known in tea party circles. he is expected to file his paper work today to run for president. mccotter plays the guitar. so we might see him out on the campai

the latest for us overnight. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we are reaching crisis time here on capitol hill. the republicans delayed a vote on their bill in the house because they don't even have enough republican votes to pass their own bill. democrats don't have the votes to pass their bill either. the only thing certain up here right now is that everything is in doubt. >> we appreciate you calling. >> reporter: the calls are pouring in. plenty of outrage but like congress itself, the callers seem hopelessly divided. >> i would really like for him to hold the line against any deal in congress. >> i am calling to ask that you cooperate with the president's efforts. >> reporter: the whole place seems to have broken down. republicans can't even convince some of their own members to vote for the republican plan. in a closed door meeting republican leader eric cantor told fellow conservatives to "stop whining and support the bill." acknowledging "the debt limit vote sucks." across the country, that's the view of washington itself. >> no one is certainly listening to the pe
